This is a long Jack Teagarden (1905-1964) track, but I wish it could go on forever. He is one of my favorite jazz men. He died too young. He recorded this number on February 5, 1961.

This is one of my favorite Cole Porter songs of all time. Bing Crosby introduced it in 1956, but Dick Haymes (1918-1980) revived it and made it his own. Dick Haymes's version was recorded on May 24, 1978.

I love this song, but I am a big fan of Pat Boone - who had a big hit with the song. I found this version from television, and Nat King Cole (1919-1965) makes this song his! He recorded it on December 3, 1957.
